Colour affects our lives and our emotions in so many ways and colour is an invaluable tool to ensure the best response to your branding, business signs and marketing. Colour is one of the most persuasive elements for gaining attention, encouraging decision making and is the first sensory “touch point” with a customer. Colour is the memorable sense!
Choosing the right two basic colours for your business signage is the foundation upon which you can add your graphics. One of the first considerations in choosing the right colour combination is the level of building signage visibility that will be created. By contrasting a light colour font or graphic on a dark background or a dark font or graphic on a light background views will be more drawn to your business signs.
If your business already has an established brand colour you will want to work with that, so choose a complimentary colour for your graphics and message.
